After a long hiatus, The Word from Porter Street is back! I’m starting a new series of the podcast, focused on the reading of poetry. I start this time with a brief introduction to the plan for the series, and a few words about my sabbatical, the lack of reading aloud I’m experiencing as a result of being out of the classroom, and my experience hearing Simon Armitage read at the Huntington while I was in California this fall.
Featured poems on this first installment are all by Simon Armitage:
“Song of the West Men”
approx. running time: 8.5 minutes
Please leave feedback on this site or on Twitter; looking forward to reading more soon!
